Visit the Swiss Transport Museum, wonder at the "Kapellbrücke," the famous covered Kapell bridge across the river Reuss, board a steamboat from the dock and explore Lake Lucerne Or you could take one of the mountain railways that take you high up to one of the pre-alpine summits such as the Pilatus, the Rigi and the Stanserhorn mountains
Or visit the Culture and Congress Center. Lucerne is a place which offers something for everyone.
We were there in August of 1999.
